An internationally known economist will deliver a special presentation on the recovery from the Great Depression at 2:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 28, in the Black and Gold Room of the Memorial Union on the Fort Hays State University campus.
Dr. Frank Steindl, author of Understanding Economic Recovery in the 1930s and Monetary Interpretations of the Great Depression and numerous articles, has served as economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland, economist and counsel to the U.S. Senate Budget Committee, visiting professor at the University of Munich, Konrad Zuse Gastprofessor at the University of Bamberg, and Regents' Professor of Economics at Oklahoma State University.
Steindl's appearance here is sponsored by FHSU's Department of Economics and Finance and College of Business and Leadership in conjunction with the American Democracy Project.
The Great Depression transformed American democracy. Steindl will lecture on deflation and recovery in the 1930s. Although the causes of the depression have been extensively analyzed, the subsequent recovery has received much less attention, and he will address that disparity in his presentation.
The lecture is free and open to the public.
